Waterfront Cottages

If it’s peace and quiet that you crave, grab a rocking chair on the porch of the main Lodge or while away the hours in front of the fireplace, curled up with a good book. Quimby’s offers nightly cottage rentals, which includes use of our amenities, access to our lakes and a complementary continental breakfast each morning.  (To find out more about our seasons and rates CLICK HERE )

Quimby’s 19 rustic cottages range in size from one to four bedrooms, some featuring full kitchens and all with porches overlooking Forest Lake.   Get a morning cup of coffee and greet the day rocking on your porch, then head out to explore the Northeast Kingdom – there is plenty to do right in our backdoor from great hikes to canoeing and kayaking to fishing and biking. Quimby’s is an ideal location to host a family reunion – to getaway and enjoy some quality time with family and friends!

Family Vacations

We pride ourself on our family friendly atmosphere. During the summer season, let our complimentary counselors take your children on a hike up Averill Mountain or for a picnic at Sandy Beach or, on rainy days, to play crafts and games in Nevin Brugger Rec Hall. Then, enjoy tales of the day at that evening’s sit down dinner in the dining room, where you will enjoy family-friendly fare with many locally sourced ingredients.

We have internet in the lodge, but no TV or wi-fi in the cottages, and our guests enjoy slowing down to enjoy the pleasures of a quieter country life. Many families have been coming back for years and have formed lifelong friendships, cheering on the weekly “Quimbledon” family tennis tournament or socializing over a lobster at the weekly cookout (steaks and hamburgers available for landlubbers and kids).

Fishing for trout and salmon in Vermont at Quimby Country

Vermont Fishing & Hunting

Quimby Country sits amidst some of New England’s most productive and historic fishing waters. Brook trout, rainbows, browns, landlocked salmon, bass, pickerel, and pike swim the waters of Northern Vermont and New Hampshire. Whatever catch you desire is always less than an hour’s drive away and often much closer.

The only thing more overwhelming than the number of incredible fishing locations around Quimby’s is the sheer abundance of world class big and small game hunting available on nearby state and federal lands and privately owned commercial timberland. Learn More!
